Ran/walked 2.2 miles
My wife and I went to the Jordan River in the late afternoon. She walked her usual 2 miles, and I ran/walked 2.2 miles, using my usual 25 seconds running and 40 seconds walking. I took two rest breaks on the way back, at 1.2 miles and 1.7 miles. There was a lot of shade on the path due to the lateness in the afternoon. It was pleasant to be outcside.
